We’ve fulfilled our 3 key promises to Nigerians — Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said his government has fulfilled the 3 key campaign promises he made to Nigeria in 2015.

The Nigerian leader made this revelation less than 4 months to the end of his tenure.

The president revealed this on Saturday at the 7th convocation ceremony of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.

He said he has successfully fulfilled his promises he made to the nation in the areas of the security, economy and fight against corruption.

He said, “Let me remind us all that my campaign to become president in 2015 was built on the promise to improve security, strengthen the economy and combat corruption. It is with immense gratitude to Almighty Allah that I make a bold to say that we have delivered on the three promises.

“At my inauguration, the country was practically under the siege of terrorism and other forms of insecurity. With every sense of responsibility, I state boldly that the war against terrorism has been fought and won as all the territories lost to the these groups have been reclaimed. And terrorism in Nigeria today is breathing its last breath.

“It is also noteworthy that under my watch Nigeria rose from the brackish waters of near-economic collapse to become acknowledged as the largest economy on the African continent. This is no mean feat. It is not a given. It can only be the result of a well-orchestrated developmental plan.

“Corruption also held the country by the jugular before I assumed office in 2015. It is also an acknowledged fact that the policies of my administration, including the introduction of the TSA, the whistle-blowing policy and the intensification of prosections by anti-corruption agencies have rolled back the tide of corruption in the country.

“While it is an impossibility to channel all the available funds in the country to the education sector, it is a matter of public knowledge that my administration, since its inception on May 29 2015, has been incrementally increasing funding to the sector in its yearly budgets,” he said.
